Respect the Wed Poa community

Wed Poa is a modern and unique platform and we strive to make it a warm place for everyone regardless of age, gender, religion, race or ethnic background. For it to be so, we ask that you maintain the highest level of respect to the Wed Poa community. Just don’t abuse the Service. Every cool, new and provided feature on Wed Poa involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

Don’t cross the line

Here are some common-sense rules that’ll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously, follow them religiously and take them to heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes, to play smart or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.

Nudity or sexual content

Wed Poa is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your content, even if it’s a post, video or photo of yourself, don’t post or share it on Wed Poa. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation. Child exploitation is categorically loathed, prohibited and shunned on Wed Poa. If a post, video or photo is intended to be sexually provocative, don’t post or upload it on Wed Poa.

What we may consider to be sexually explicit content

  • If breasts, buttocks or genitals (clothed or unclothed) are the focal point of the a post, video or photo;
  • If a post, video or photo setting is sexually suggestive (e.g. a location generally associated with sexual activity, such as a bed);
  • If the subject is depicted in a pose that is intended to sexually arouse the viewer;
  • If the language used in a post, video or photo is vulgar and/or lewd;
  • If the subject’s actions in a post, video or photo suggest a willingness to engage in sexual activity (e.g. kissing, provocative dancing, fondling); and
  • If a subject is minimally clothed
  • If the clothing would be acceptable in appropriate public contexts (e.g. swimwear vs. lingerie).

Violent or graphic content

Do not post, share or upload violent or gory content that is, or which is primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful. Don’t encourage others to commit specific acts of violence. Do not post, share or upload content that contain content that is violent, disturbing or graphic in nature. If you want to post, share or upload content that contain dramatized depictions of violence, be warned, graphic or disturbing content that contains violence or gore is categorically not allowed on Wed Poa

Content Related to Terrorism

Wed Poa strictly and unconditionally prohibits content intended to recruit for terrorist organizations, incite violence, celebrate terrorist attacks or otherwise promote acts of terrorism. We also do not permit terrorist organizations, be they local or foreign, to use Wed Poa. Content intended to promote acts of terrorism, for example how to make a bomb or use arms is strictly, categorically and unconditionally prohibited on Wed Poa

Hateful content

Our Service is a modern platform. We strictly prohibit content that promotes, encourages or condones violence against individuals, communities or groups based on race or ethnic origin, tribe, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, social status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack or malign or insult or demean or discriminate, in any way, another person, community or group, the content crosses the line.

There is a fine line between what is and what is not considered to be hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation or state, but not okay to post malicious hateful comments about a group of people solely based on their race.

Reporting hateful content

Spam, misleading metadata, deceptive practices and scams

Everyone hates spam. Don’t create or post misleading descriptions, reviews, videos, pictures, audios, usernames, tags, titles, or thumbnails in order to increase views and reviews. It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments, reviews and messages.

We are constantly working to keep Wed Poa free of spam, scams and other deceptive practices that attempt to take advantage of the Wed Poa community.

Below you can learn in more detail what constitutes a violation of these policies;

i. Reviews, videos, photos, messages, posts and comment spam

It’s prohibited to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted, or repetitive content in reviews, videos, photos, messages, posts and comment or other places and content on the Service. If the main purpose of your content is to drive people off of Wed Poa and onto another site, it will violate our policies.

ii. Artificial traffic spam

Anything that artificially increases the number of views, likes, ratings, reviews, comments, or other metric either through the use of automatic systems or by serving up content to unsuspecting Users, is against our Terms. Content and accounts that are found to be in violation of our Terms may be closed down and removed from Wed Poa. If you are going to hire someone to help promote or manage your content, it should be someone you absolutely trust, as you may be putting the fate of your account and content (and your business on Wed Poa) in their hands. If they are using methods that violate our Terms, you may be the one to pay the bigger price, as it will be your content and account that get taken down.

iii. Misleading metadata

Metadata refers to any and all additional information provided on the content. This includes the title, description, tags, annotations, and thumbnail. The reason for metadata is so that you can add additional contextual information to your Content. Please do not use these features to game or trick our search algorithms. All metadata should be representative of the content contained in your Content. Among other things, metadata added in an attempt to game search algorithms will lead to the removal of your Content and a strike against your account.

Please select a reasonable number of tags, when and where applicable, that most closely reflect your Content’s content. Please also only add tags to the tag section of your metadata. Adding additional tags to the description or title of your video may constitute spam and can result in the removal of your Content.

iv. Misleading or racy thumbnails

Where and when thumbnails are applicable, please select the thumbnail that best represents your content. Selecting a sexually provocative or offensive thumbnail may result in the removal of your Content. The thumbnail may be the title card that will be shown next to your Content across the Service and should be appropriate for all ages. Content that are deemed deceptive will be removed from the Service and account of the uploader maybe closed.

v. Scams

Some users create content which attempts to trick others for their own benefit and financial gain. Content that deliberately tries to mislead users for financial gain may be removed, and in some cases strikes may be issued to the uploader. Please be wary of claims that seem too good to be true, as they likely are.

vi. Blackmail or extortion

Wed Poa has a zero-tolerance policy for extortion and/or blackmail. If someone has recorded a sexually exploitative Content of you and has sent the link, please report this content immediately for removal and contact your local law enforcement.

In cases where Content contains child sexual abuse imagery, our team will report it to the closest law enforcement agency who in turn works with global law enforcement agencies.

Reports may be made 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to your nearest or local law enforcement agency for crimes against children including:

  • Possession, manufacture, and distribution of child sexual abuse imagery
  • Online enticement of children for sexual acts
  • Child prostitution

  • Extrafamilial child sexual molestation
  • Unsolicited obscene material sent to a child
  • Misleading domain names

If you have found content that you wish to report, please write to us on maelezo@wedpoa.com and submit a more detailed report. Please not that all mails without proper subject heading shall be ignored and not attended to.

If we believe a child is in danger based on Content that has been reported to us, we will assist with investigations into the Content by law enforcement, when appropriate.

Harmful or dangerous content

Don’t post Content that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Content showing such harmful or dangerous acts may be removed and the uploader suspended.

While it might not seem fair to say you can’t show something because of what viewers might do in response, we draw the line at content that intends to incite violence or promote criminal activities or encourage dangerous or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm or death.

Content that we consider to encourage dangerous or illegal activities include instructional bomb making, choking games, hard drug use, or other acts where serious injury may result. Content that depicts dangerous acts may be allowed at Wed Poa’s sole discretion if the primary purpose is artistic and it isn’t gratuitously graphic.

Content that incite others to commit acts of violence are strictly prohibited from Wed Poa. Content that have content that could be used to commit any acts of violence are strictly prohibited from Wed Poa. If your Content asks others to commit an act of violence or threatens people with serious acts of violence, it will be removed from the site and we will report you to law enforcement agencies.

We are very sensitive to any harmful or dangerous Content that involves minors. If your Content shows a minor participating in a harmful or dangerous activity, do not post it on Wed Poa. In the interest of protecting minors, we may restrict Content containing adults participating in activities that have a high risk of injury or death.

Copyright

Respect copyright. Only upload and share Content that you made or that you’re authorized to use. This means don’t upload or share Content you didn’t make, or use imagery of property or of persons who didn’t give you the consent and authorizations to record them, or use Content in your content that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary and full authorizations.

Things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate our Terms are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from Wed Poa.

Harassment and cyber-bullying

We want you to use our Service without fear of being subjected to malicious harassment. In cases where harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and will be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should simply be ignored.

i. Harassment may include:

  • Maliciously recording someone without their consent
  • Deliberately posting content in order to humiliate someone
  • Making hurtful and negative comments/videos, photos about another person
  • Unwanted sexualization, which encompasses sexual harassment or sexual bullying in any form

ii. Tips and advice:

  • Pause before you post: Think seriously about how you may be perceived online and do not post anything that may compromise your reputation or safety.
  • Speak up: Tell friends to stop cyber-bullying and voice your opinion against cyber-bullying when you see it on the site.
  • Tell an adult if you get concerned about another’s actions towards you online.
  • Respect people’s opinions online but know when it crosses the line. We want Wed Poa to be a dynamic and expressive platform but we do not want users to feel intimidated or threatened.

Protecting your privacy

If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video or photo of you without your consent, start by contacting the uploader and asking them to remove the content.

If you can’t reach an agreement with the uploader, or if you are uncomfortable contacting them, you can request removal of content based on our Privacy Guidelines.

For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable. When assessing if an individual is uniquely identifiable, we may consider the following factors:

  • Your image or voice
  • Full name
  • Financial information
  • Contact information
  • Other personally identifiable information

Tips on how to protect your privacy on Wed Poa:

Think carefully before you post personal information. This includes things like the exact place you live in, where you go to school, your mobile number, bank details, or your home address.

Protect your account data and don’t share your password with others. Wed Poa employees and officials will NEVER ask you for your password. Don’t be fooled if someone contacts you pretending to be from Wed Poa.

Get permission first. As a rule of thumb, you should always get permission before filming other people, taking their photographs or posting their personal information.

Reporting privacy violations

You may report content that you believe violate this policy through the Report tool on the content page

If you have found content that you wish to report, please write to us on maelezo@wedpoa.com and submit a more detailed report. Please not that all mails without proper subject heading shall be ignored and not attended to.

Impersonation

Activities such as copying a user’s account, using a similar username, or posing as another person in comments, emails, messages, photos, reviews or videos may be considered harassment. In cases where our team determines that an account was established to impersonate another account or individual, the account will be removed.

There are two ways that impersonation can happen on Wed Poa:

i. Impersonation of an account:

A user copies an account’s profile, photos, background or text, and writes comments, reviews or messages to make it look like somebody else’s account posted the comments, reviews or messages. If you feel that your account is being impersonated, please let us know through maelezo@wedpoa.com and submit a more detailed report. Please not that all mails without proper subject heading shall be ignored and not attended to.

ii. Impersonation of an individual:

A user creates an account or Content using another individual’s real name, image, or other personal information to deceive people into thinking they are someone else on Wed Poa. If you feel that somebody is impersonating you, please let us know through our reporting tool or on maelezo@wedpoa.com and submit a more detailed report. Please not that all mails without proper subject heading shall be ignored and not attended to.

Working with third party view and review service providers

i. View and review policy basics

Wed Poa defines a view as a user’s intended and successful attempt to view content. Views should only be a result of pure viewer choice to view content, not as a result of a transaction through incentivized views. View count gaming is trying to make a non-view into a view. Wed Poa defines a review as a user’s intended and successful attempt to publicly give feedback, through the legally provided review functionalities and tools, on a service or product they have personally purchased and experienced.

ii. What is going on in the marketplace?

There may be many companies who are building their business based on selling Wed Poa-related services. Some may offer to help users with strategy and services, some may offer tools to manage account and/or brand presence, and others may promise to guarantee Wed Poa views and reviews.

iii. What’s Wed Poa’s position?

The best way to grow the Wed Poa business is to encourage a healthy ecosystem of companies that support Wed Poa. Wed Poa supports companies that work within our ecosystem so long as they follow our Policies and Terms. We can’t guarantee the validity of these services.

Wed Poa is an organic Content site and the best way to naturally distribute your Content. Purchasing views and reviews for your content directly from third-party websites (e.g. paying $10 for 10,000 views or reviews) is downright prohibited.

Remember that ultimately, you’re responsible for your Content traffic. If you contract a company that gives you spam instead of views and reviews, you will be putting the fate of your account (and your business on Wed Poa) in their hands, and you pay the price, not the company.

iv. Why adding context to your Content is so important

Wed Poa is a place for people all over the globe. Wed Poa’s Community Guidelines represent the rules of the road for all of them.

For all types of content you share, post and upload on Wed Poa, adding context is very important. The information you add in the title and description is what helps other people find and understand your Content. It will also help the Wed Poa team review your Content if it does get reported.

Our goal at Wed Poa is to allow as much content as possible on the Service while still ensuring that our Community Guidelines are followed. It is a delicate balancing act, and we depend on our Users to help. So whether you’re a new service provider or an established one, a small business or a multinational, remember: context is king. The information you add to your Content helps tell your story, find an audience, and make an impact, it could even help your Content be an important part of history in the making.

Finally, if you feel your content was removed in error, you can always appeal the decision by contacting us on maelezo@wedpoa.com and submit a more detailed report. Please not that all mails without proper subject heading shall be ignored and not attended to.

We review your reports carefully

You might not like everything you see on Wed Poa. Some of the content might offend you. If you think it’s inappropriate, locate the flagging feature on the Content page and submit it for review by our Wed Poa staff.

Our staff reviews reported content often to determine whether they violate our Community Guidelines. When they do, we remove them. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations, and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If an account is terminated, that person won’t be allowed to create any new accounts.
